A hard-hitting and controversial examination of honor crimes. Common in many traditional societies around the world, as well as in migrant communities in Europe and the USA, they involve a 'punishment'-often death or disfigurement-carried out by a relative to restore the family's honor. Breaking through the conspiracy of silence, one writer above all others has been instrumental in bringing it to the world's attention: Rana Husseini.
